TURIN SHROUD CENTER
It’s the most intensely studied artifact in human history. Never before has the church allowed an object of faith to be inspected with the natural tools of science.
Please visit the wonderful website of the Turin Shroud Center of Colorado.
This is a personal invitation to join John Jackson, PH.D., founder of the Turin Shroud Center of Colorado and acclaimed ethnologist Rebecca Jackson for an experience that could transform your life. The ordinary pilgrim may never encounter the people and places we have scheduled.
The Holy Shroud
The Real Face of Jesus from the Shroud of Turin
THE HISTORY CHANNEL: “The encoding of 3D information onto an ancient piece of cloth has fascinated believers and skeptics alike, not least among them John Jackson, a professor of Physics at the University of Colorado. In 1978, Jackson led a team of American scientists which was given exclusive access to the cloth for five days of intensive scientific examination. Jackson has continued his analysis of that data until the present time. In late 2009, Ray Downing, the show’s co-producer traveled to Jackson’s Turin Shroud Center in Colorado to learn more about the science of the cloth from the man who has studied it first-hand. But despite decades of intense scientific investigation, the mechanism underlying the mysterious encoding of this three dimensional data within the Shroud remains elusive. Against the background of Shroud history and information, HISTORY’s team is seen grappling with the faint Shroud image to wrestle out the hidden face within.” Two Hour Special on the History Channel was aired March 30, 2010.
As they explore Dubrovnik, Medjugorje including the Roman heritage sites of along the Adriatic coast. Dr. Jackson was the leader of the famous 1978 scientific expedition of 30 scientists to study the Shroud directly on site in Turin, Italy.
Embark on an unforgettable Adriatic island cruise. Special visits to Trogir and the hidden treasures of Slovenia are scheduled in addition to the spectacular Plitvice Lakes, Postojna’s Cave via underground railway, the Bay of Kavnar and stunning Lake Bled. Included during our visits are specialized lectures by Dr. John Jackson and his wife, Mariologist, Rebecca Jackson regarding the Shroud’s probable contributions to understanding First Century Apostolic Christianity, which is reflected in East-West Christian liturgies and art.
